    Endings matter.Much like the second button makes or breaks a shirt. It's the ending of a movie that makes or breaks a movie.

    Dune's beginning was good, the middle was fantastic, but the ending was atrocious. Ignoring the lack of a traditional cliff hanger ending (a la empire strikes back) the movie just stops. And it stops poorly. We had just learned about the importance of a special non rhythmic sand walk. And how did the movie end? With everyone walking off into the dunes. With normal rhythmic walking.

    Continuity girl had a day off when they filmed the ending. 7/10.

    It's more than finding out there are rules here. I've been on this site for a little over two years. Every year I typically switch social media handles. I recently switched to my third account....

    Even the mildest moderation actions are likely to cause people to leave when they find out they can't just do whatever they want.

    Every year I typically switch social media handles.

    I recently switched to my third account.

    Somehow my new account was caught up in a whirlwind of moderation.

    There is something inexpressibly dispiriting about having comments and topics deleted, unexpectedly.

    And I don't think I am the only one unclear on what the rules of engagement are here.

    Something for you to mull over, perhaps.
